It is shown that an exact expression can be derived from Dubinin's theory, for the enthalpy of immersion of active carbons. It appears that for a given liquid, the specific enthalpy of immersion is a function of the characteristic energy βE0 of the Dubinin-Astakhov equation. The new relation is illustrated by data obtained for 10 different carbons immersed into benzene and... Plus

    Summary
    It is shown that an exact expression can be derived from Dubinin's theory, for the enthalpy of immersion of active carbons. It appears that for a given liquid, the specific enthalpy of immersion is a function of the characteristic energy βE0 of the Dubinin-Astakhov equation. The new relation is illustrated by data obtained for 10 different carbons immersed into benzene and n-heptane at 34°C. Simultaneously, results are presented for the immersion into water, not described by Dubinin's theory, but providing useful complementary information about the chemical state of the surface.
